Mbappe equals Zlatan’s PSG goalscoring mark

Only Edinson Cavani has scored more goals for the French giants than their 23-year-old sharpshooter

On Saturday, Kylian Mbappe joined Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the all-time scoring charts for Paris Saint-Germain after the striker’s double helped his team beat Saint-Etienne.

Mbappe joined PSG from Monaco and has swiftly become a favourite at Parc des Princes.

However, with the star’s contract set to expire at the end of the current season, his future remains uncertain.

On Saturday, PSG was forced to come back from a deficit to win all three points.

After only 16 minutes, the visitors took the lead through Denis Bouanga, before Mbappe equalized just before halftime.

Mbappe was on target again when the game restarted and Danilo Pereira put the Ligue 1 leaders 3-1 ahead, securing a win for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

The goal took Mbappe to 156 PSG goals in all competitions, tying him with Ibrahimovic as the second most prolific scorer in the club’s history.

The only player ahead of the 23-year-old World Cup winner is Edinson Cavani, who scored 200 goals before joining Manchester United.

In addition, PSG has come back to win six times in Ligue 1 this season, which is more than any other season.
